Students in first and second grades work on a daily work plan during our morning work cycle. This includes activities and assignments to follow-up their lessons with the Montessori materials and should be completed daily. Some of these activities will be chosen by the student. After assessment of our first graders during the first weeks of school, work plans will be adjusted to meet their needs individually.
Snacks and Lunch
Snack is available to students during the morning work cycle. If your child has food allergies, we ask that you please provide a daily snack for your child. We welcome volunteers to provide special snacks of fruits or vegetables. Please email Ms. Anita (email@example.com) if you would like to provide a special snack.
Lunch time takes place from 12:00 – 12:30 each day. Please send a cloth napkin in your child’s lunchbox each day to be used as a placemat. *Please remember to pack any utensils needed for your child’s lunch.
Each Thursday your child may bring one special item to share with the class. Examples include items found in nature, a souvenir from a trip, or something the child has made. Toys are not appropriate for sharing time and should be left at home.
This year we will be using a website called Jupitergrades to help keep families informed of school activities. This website can also be used to contact teachers and keep track of any tardies or absences. Please see the enclosed information on how to log in to Jupitergrades.
We ask that you respect the concentration and needs of students and teachers by not entering the classroom in the morning during work cycle. Instead, please email with important communications or send a note in your child’s folder. We do try to check email several times throughout the day. In addition, please feel free to look in after pick-up time if you need to speak to us, or email to set up a formal conference.
Please feel free to send me an email with any questions or concerns. Thank you!
